I am redesigning my resume and parts of the design will include the logo of previous companies for which I have worked. In order to make the various color schemes of these companies work better with the color scheme of my resume, I would like to change their color scheme.
Let's say, for example, I'd like to represent these companies on my resume:
Let's assume these companies do not have any logo branding guidelines, since the companies which I will include do not.
If I were to use these logos on my resume, I'd consider muting the Google logo to a greyscale color, and changing the USA Today dot to a greenish dot.
Since these changes would be present on my resume, potential employers would likely assume that I modified the logos. In your graphic design experience, is this ever appropriate?
I do not want or need to make any other changes to these logos. Of course, I could just drop the whole idea altogether.
